Full backup (level 0) with RMAN and BRBACKUP

Is it possible to take a full level 0 backup with RMAN to disk.

I am using the following parameters in init<SID>.sap

backup_mode = full

backup_dev_type = disk

disk_copy_cmd = rman

but when the backup kicks off, it starts an oracle backup where it puts tablespaces in begin/end backup mode

Or is it only possible to take Incremental backup (level 1) to disk with RMAN (without backup library)?

Thanks

    hi,

    I'm not expert on RMAN, but I think the issue you have is

    backup_dev_type

    I think it should be

    backup_dev_type = rman_disk

    But I'm not sure if any will woirk without a backup library

      rman_disk asks for tape media management library, i want to take a backup to disk with RMAN

      RMAN level 0 backup to disk is possible if we invoke RMAN directly, but is there a way of taking the backup from the brtools
